Taken from a copper engraving published in the mid 1700's. The terms First and Third rate refer to the size of the ship and number of guns the ship carried. The work horse of the Royal Navy would have been the Third Rate ships while the flagships, such as Nelsons "Victory" were the First Rate ships. These ships were so vastly expensive that they spent much of their time in port, only venturing to sea in times of great danger to the nation.

 Framing Information
We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.

We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.

Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
 Product Information
We specialize in supplying original maps and reproductions of the rarer maps, all dissected and hand laid onto 100% natural cotton cloth. All of them are supplied in handmade slipcases covered in marbled paper taken from our collection of original papers dating back to circa 1700.
